The festival is being held to celebrate the opening of The Rosa Lewis Bar named after the legendary “Duchess of Jermyn Street” who owned the hotel for 50 years from 1902.
During the month-long festival guests and members of the public are invited to the hotel to enjoy half-price Mondays and win prizes by tweeting #cocktailwednesday, Checking-In on Facebook or Foursquare and submitting Instagrams and Vines.
The Rosa Lewis Bar is named after Rosa Lewis, a British chef and owner of The Cavendish Hotel in London from 1902 to 1952. Known as the “Queen of Cooks” her culinary skills were highly prized by Edward VII with whom she was rumoured to have had an affair in the 1890s. She was also called “The Duchess of Jermyn Street.” Rosa Lewis was a strong woman and a infamous character amongst society and many tales are told of her flamboyance. One of her employers was Lady Randolph Churchill. One day, Rosa chased Lady Churchill’s then ten-year-old, red-haired son Winston out of her kitchen, shouting “Hop it, copper knob!”
